Love carved out


Isaiah 49:15-16
Can a woman forget her nursing child,
or show no compassion for the child of her womb?
Even these may forget,
yet I will not forget you.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are continually before me.

Loved before birth
Cherished through life
with the unconditional love
of a mother bearing the joys
and sorrow of birth
Releasing her child
into the harshness of life
out of the womb of protection
Suckling, sustaining
Continuing to nourish
and nurture growth
Affirming love
that knows no end
A love that comes unbidden
and is never exhausted
or withheld
A love carved
on the palm
of God's hand.
